    You Don't Read Comics - Brandon Masters Dec 18, 2018

    While far from the best issue to jump into Daredevils story, Soule has crafted a strong end to a very enjoyable story. While the deck may have been cleared for the next writer, Chip Zdarsky, to take the story wherever he pleases, Soule has also left several new toys in the toybox for Chip to play with when he takes the helm for Daredevil in the coming months. Go back through your local comic shops back issue bins (or grab some back-issues from Comixology) and dig up the start of this storyline if youve not read the opening issues yet. You wont be disappointed. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Nov 28, 2018

    What bolstered both elements of this story was the stunning art by Phil Noto. Both the style and tone of the art and colors played into the reveal perfectly. There are moments that are hauntingly beautiful in this issue and this made me go back and re-read the entire arc again. Well done. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Nov 28, 2018

    Soule closes a chapter in the life of Matt Murdock and we'll have to wait a few months to see what's next but this is a beautiful comic that feels like a fitting tribute to Daredevil and personal in a way too. The team is given us a hell of a chapter that's hard to not choke up a little as the final pages are read. “Death” of heroes seems to happen every week in comics, and never permanent, but when the story is this good, who really cares.

    Multiversity Comics - Gustavo S. Lodi Dec 3, 2018

    An ending to be celebrated, both by the quality of this last issue and by the doors it keeps open going forward, "Daredevil" #612 celebrates the losses and victories of Matt Murdock and how both of them push the hero forward. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Daniel Clark Dec 3, 2018

    There is a lot that can be said regarding Charles Soule's run on Daredevil and the same goes for his final issue. His stamp will be one that will no doubt linger for some time and his ending opens up as much discussion as it closes. Soule took a lot of bold steps and within that boldness, you will find great success and occasional failure. Even within that failure, Soule found something of merit and because of that, he is leaving the character in just as good of a place as he found it. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Jones Nov 28, 2018

    For a story that had a tough job at making some kind of finality and last statement on the character in a really short amount of time, Soule did an excellent job pulling the rug out from underneath readers at the last minute. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Christian Hoffer Nov 28, 2018

    In the end, Daredevil feels most at home in a courtroom and, more broadly, in New York, and Soule found a way to put Daredevil back in both. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Ethan Maddux Nov 29, 2018

    This arc has been a stellar reflection on what Daredevil has gone through in the last three years, but a somewhat lackluster one when asked to stand on its own two feet. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Dec 1, 2018

    Daredevil #612 delivered a twist ending that subverted the expectations for a story called "The Death of Daredevil." A lot could've gone wrong that would've made Daredevil #612 a lackluster ending. Instead what we got was a conclusion that was a mixed bag. Charles Soule did an effective job showcasing the mortality of Matt Murdock. Unfortunately Soule also slipped up on the execution on several plot points the twist ended up affecting negatively. In the end these positives and negatives ended up canceling each other out, making "The Death of Daredevil" an odd note for Soule to end his run on. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Nov 28, 2018

    Matt Murdock maybe dead (probably not) but if Daredevil #612 was his big sendoff then it is not a very good way to go for such a great hero. It is not the worst issue ever but with such a high mark to hit Daredevil #612 doesn't come close to the board. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Nov 29, 2018

    With the final issue of the Death of Daredevil, Charles Soule wraps his run on Daredevil not with a bang, not with a whimper, but with a cheat " a cheat that, despite a handful of poignant moments, isn't enough to not retroactively sink his final arc. Read Full Review
